Pioneering the use of robotic Technologies for the treatment and staging of cervical, endometrial, and uterine cancers, Colleen M. Feltmate, MD, Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery in Gynecologic Oncology, and Michael G. Muto, MD, gynecologic oncologist, at the Gynecologic Oncology Program at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center have completed Almost 100 robot-assisted radical hysterectomy procedures. There are many clinics who provide the Best Minimally Invasive Surgery like Avicenna Clinic..
Robot-assisted surgery for gynecologic cancers provides outstanding benefits for patients, such as a shorter hospital stay and dramatically reduced recovery period because of less pain and distress compared with open procedures. The robot-assisted approach also enables many gynecologic cancer patients who are not eligible for conventional laparoscopy to undergo minimally invasive surgery.
This revolutionary surgical approach offers:
Shorter hospital stay – moderate 1.5 day stay for robot assisted radical hysterectomy, in comparison to a four-to five day hospital stay after open hysterectomy
Quicker recovery – Many patients have the ability to go back to work two weeks after robot-assisted radical hysterectomy
Reduced blood loss – moderate of 50ml or less of blood loss and 3cm or smaller incision with robot-assisted radical hysterectom
Minimally invasive solution for gynecologic cancer patients with poor accessibility, obesity, or scarring from prior surgery.
Robot-assisted operation also offers enhanced security compared with conventional laparoscopy by providing enhanced range-of-motion, more finite control of devices, and a 3 dimensional view with greater magnification of the patient's body.
